This website is an initiative of Duke University Divinity School. It has short articles from 'academics' and those 'in the field'. Delighted to find Ronald Heifetz talking about adaptive leadership. I first heard about Heifetz from Mary Hess, and this notion of 'adaptive leadership', as opposed to technical leadership, is the first of 6 essential leadership characteristics descrbied in John Rioberto's book "Faith Formation 2020".
Technical leadership applies known solutions to known problems, which may be exceedingly complex, but can be solved with wisdom and processes already understood. Hence leadership is primarily about mobilising resources (from Leadership Can Be Taught by Sharon Parks). Adaptive challenges are often not only more complex, they resist technical solutions. They require transformed habits and values. Adaptive leadership is about the capacity to observe, interpret and design. Leadership education then, is about teaching leaders to do this, but also helping then learn to icnrease the capacity of those whom they lead to be adaptive.
"Faith and Leadership" has a bunch of videos, and they're also on their Youtube Channel.
Heifetz also features on video at the website of the The Institute for Educational Leadership in Ontario, Canada. Click here. (viewable on a Windows computer only... sigh... they're educators, for goodness sake!)
